Inglesham, page There is now a riverside path so there is no need to walk along the busy main road. On reaching the quiet road at Inglesham you now go right to the church. Take the new path opposite the church which leads down to the river.

Lombard Wharf, page 45 On approaching Battersea Railway Bridge from Albion Quay go under the bridge through a newly opened arch to reach a new riverside path on Lombard Wharf. Walkers do not now have to go inland to join the main road. Page 25 First paragraph, second line: the Pizza Lounge has been demolished. Page 74 Shepperton Ferry The new phone number is The fare includes a cup of tea or coffee in the Nauticalia shop on the left bank. Page At King's Lock there is a shelter with table and chairs suitable for a picnic stop. Look out for signs at Rainbow Bridge.
Page In the third paragraph: The stile has been replaced by steps and the squeeze stile by a small gate set in the main gate. In fairness, strictly in terms of route-finding, the Thames Path National Trail is extremely well signposted and with perhaps literally 1 or 2 occasions it could be argued there is no need for this book. It provides significant historical interest and it is - in my opinion — written at the optimum level, with just the right amount of detail to provide a talking point as you progress upstream.
Each stage has a 'Facilities Information' section with useful information around refreshments, accommodation and transport, etc. Inevitably there will be changes to establishments as they open and close. However generally there were plenty of options for eating and sleeping and the information was accurate. As always the publisher Cicerone updates changes on their website.

The 10 Best Running Routes in London
Photos complement the easy to read text and there is sufficient margin space to make notes, etc. Although written when travelling upstream to the source, the content could easily be followed if travelling downstream. The inclusion of the OS K map booklet is a great addition to this guidebook and will no doubt become the norm at least for future Cicerone publications of UK walks.
The plastic cover protects the guide and I can confirm that despite being carried in my hand throughout the walk, dropped occasionally and opened and closed very regularly, neither the guidebook or map booklet show any sign of falling apart. In conclusion, this guidebook is produced to the usual outstanding Cicerone standards. The contents will not strictly speaking make a difference to route-finding. With the included OS maps, it will provide reassurance and give an indication of your progress each day. In my opinion its greatest value is however the snippets of information and commentary it gives as you travel along the Thames and as such is a worthwhile and recommended companion whether you are doing day walks or the Trail in its entirety.
This guidebook and route map booklet combination is all you will possibly need to get you through the mile walk of the Thames Path. I am looking forward to putting both to the test in the next two years.
